Tourists in the City of Lights, by Michael A.

On the Pont des Arts
Honeymooners ask me
To snap their pic;
Behind them

On the island
Where Paris began,
Caesar spoke
With men who had walked

A thousand miles
Through eastern
Forest so dense
They never saw the sun.

Consider them
When your morning shadow
Greets you at the Deux Magots.
